Original 1940s 40s Vintage Black Crepe And Satin Day Dress With Huge Peplum
This splendid dress was made from a black crepe in the 1940s and has been embellished throughout using a good heavy quality satin. The v-neckline with its small rounded collar is decorated with a satin tie. This tie forms a decorative bow at the front and terminates in a large triangular satin panel at the back of the neck. The satin embellishment motif is continued with the amazing huge peplum with integrated functional pockets, which vents and opens at the back and is secured with hooks and eyes. It also cleverly disguises the bottom part of the metal side zipper. The full length sleeves end with a satin turn up cuffs and the inside of the dress is unlined.
Length: 47” plus 3” hem
The dress is in very good condition, however there is a little stress at some the seams joining the satin to the crepe at the neckline as pictured.
